Terrible....

Admissions Representative (Current Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

Prosthe pay was good... start off at 40k plus with a degree
decent hours (depending on your success rate of course)

Conseverything else is terrible... yes i mean everything....sales job... dial the phone 400 plus times a day just to hear 300 voicemails and 100 hang ups...

Very unrealistic sales goals..... selling useless education to unsuspectiing students.

you can find yourself working 60 plus hours a week if you are not successful "getting applications" and "starting students"

At that point its just a constant hustle to get as many students as you can to sign up for school and ruin their lives with a useless degree and put them into unbelievable debt.

Advice to Senior Managementthere is no hope for this company....sorry...

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Run.

    Academic Counselor (Former Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

    I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Benefits were good and it's an office job where it's relatively easy to get hired. A good starting point for fresh grads who can't… Cons: Management doesn't listen and I honestly think the entire Art Institute Online Division is run by complete morons. They are absolutely out of touch… Advice to Senior Management: Change everything you are doing. Start with a real code of ethics and follow it instead of paying lip service to it. Actually… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
